“Highest Automotive Tunnel in America: The Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel” Presented by Hannah Braun
One of the most incredible feats of transportation engineering and completed in the 1970s, the tunnel was the highest vehicular tunnel in the world. An average of 30,000 cars travel through the tunnel each day, and 400 million cars have used the tunnel since it opened, without a single motorist fatality. The fascinating story of the tunnel involves harsh winters, dangerous fault lines, technological advances, and a fight for women’s rights in the work place.
